One of the most picturesque areas of Italy is the dolomites. The mountains and villages are straight out of a storybook. This little valley is just one of those places. Not too many places have a view that lloks like thgis. I have been to the Dolomites a few times and each time find new locations that make the area so special.
I have been Iceland dozens of times. It’s an amazing country and has a lot of great places to photograph. After a while everyone that visits takes the same pictures of the same things, This church is no exception. I have photogrphed this chuch a lot but on this day I had low hanging clouds and lots of birds flying over it. Thus, I was lucky to get an image that is somehwat a differnt view. Shot with a long lens from a low angle. It’s a peaceful image.
As you can see if you have been folloWing my blog for a while, I have a thing with Iceland. It’s. amagical place. I always find something different to photograph there. I was on a day tour from Reykjavik and came across this church on one of the many back road I explored. The red roof and the background makes for a very serene photo.
The Dolomites in Italy is an amazing area for a wide range of photography. Majestic mountains, incredible sunrises and sunsets and beautiful villages tucked away in little mountain hideaways. This image was made at sunrise and the Phase One IQ 180 back allowed the wide dynamic range to be captured. What an amazing location!
One of the best breakfast spots I know of is in Sugar Hill, New Hampshire. Here is where Polly’s Pancake Parlor is located. I had three breakfasts there on my journey in New England. After each breakfast I would go out for a few hours of shooting on the back roads. This church is right down the road from Polly’s. The clouds that morning were dramatic. The shot was hard because I was shooting into the light. I was able to recover the image using creative processing using Capture One. This is the iconic New England church.
I have visited this unique church in Iceland many times. On my recent trip I visited it again and decided to shoot it with the iPhone and Hipstamaticapp. Iceland has some beautiful churches. Most are small and quaint but a few are really cool the way they are designed. This is one of them.
One of the prettiest places I have visited in recent years is the Dolomites in Italy. There are so many beautiful landscapes to photograph. One morning w did a sunrise shoot along a road with this church and small village in the foreground. It was one of those grand sunrises as you can see.
Some things here in the dolomites are too hard to describe. It’s all rather post cardish and just plain pretty. Like this image. Here is a church with these great mountains as a background and beautiful skies to go with it. These images are all being made as part of the Phase One PODAS workshop presently going on. We will be shooting through Saturday so expect more images.
While visiting Tuscany I loved visiting churches. These are usually very old structures and they have some very unique settings. This is a church I visited in a small village that had the crucifix hanging from the ceiling. And, when you looked up you got an incredible backdrop.
